Layout-- Possible. Improbable. Forget it? (7 posts)

    Would it be possible to do this, or something close to it, on WordPress:
    URL's:

    http://www.dlaakso.com/weblog/weblog/index.html
    These pages are in the works, so they are rather rough around the edges, nevertheless I think there may be enough uploaded to get across the idea I have...
    I have no training or experience using MySQL/PHP. Would I be biting off more than I could chew attempting this on WordPress?
    Thanks!

    Yes, it would take some considerable css work. Take a look at this, perhaps you can see some similarities:

    Contrary to popular belief you can use ANY design with WordPress. You just have to cut and paste all the php code in index.php into the relevant places in your html, rename that index.php et voila. Many people here dislike that approach as not every page thus produced will be xhml valid. But what the hell. It's your page, not theirs.

    Willneea, if you need any help, I created the flower layout (wow somebody actually saw it!!!) and would love to offer any assistance, I'm bored, and it's summer. As for standards, hehe, I spent an hour yesterday revalidating my site, only to come across this post:

    Anonymous, thanks for your reply and comment. I know from nothing about php/mysql-- so guess I'll have to sort this, and the question of valid (x)html/css, as I go along...

    uplink, to ask if I need any assistance is the under statement of the year! First off, I'm crazy about your *wild thing*; and I gratefully accept your kind and generous offer. What is the WordPress "support" forum policy? If we do it off-forum, my email address (script/no-script) can be acessed from:

    Thanks!

    PS Valid (x)html/css has its rewards. But then so does "sucking pot roast through a straw."
